The SpaceThe bathroom is a private ensuite. There are a small fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, cutlery and plates in the kitchen space. This will enable guests to heat up food, but the facilities are not designed for a full-on cooking experience. We can loan pots / kitchen equipment if needed. Table for two in the bedroom space. Guest AccessEnjoy the rear garden space past the moongate. Access is via pathway leading from the drive round the back of the garage. Interaction with GuestsWe like to try and share a cuppa with you on arrival. Sometimes both of us are working during the day, but mostly one of us will be around. Order breakfasts with us the night before and we will ensure it's on time for you in the morning and delivered to your doorstep. (For weekly specials, we'll ensure you are stocked with the basics, but you will organise your own breakfasts). It's nice to see you to say goodbye when you leave, so if we are around, please don't feel shy to come and let us know you are going. The NeighborhoodThere are many cafes and restaurants walking distance from our place. Getting AroundParking is available in the driveway. We are 5 minutes walk from central Motueka and close to the park and library. We have bicycles which you are free to use should you wish to get some fresh air.
We are 15 minutes drive from the famous golden sands of Kaiteriteri Beach and 20 minutes drive from Marahau, the entrance to the Abel Tasman National Park. Other Things to NoteThe shower has a small hot water tank, so you will get one 5 minute long shower, but you may have to wait about an hour for it to reheat for a second person. Easily manageable if one person takes a shower at night and the other in the morning. Soap up with the water off and you'll be absolutely fine for two short showers in succession!
Also to note - mainly for winter use - the fuse may blow if 2-3 heating appliances used at the same time (eg kettle, heater, electric blanket). You just need to ensure when put on the kettle that you turn off other cooking items.
We welcome longer term stays for couples (cheaper than both staying in a local backpacker's where you have to share facilities and bedroom space with up to 6 others). However please note that if you take advantage of the discounted weekly price, we will not include breakfasts in the deal.
